Pier 8 Pinot Grigio (6)

This has been up before, any notes?
I may be in the market for more Pinot Grigio soon.

Pier 8 is a winery that does not take itself too seriously and brings a little fun in your life. The grapes come from vineyards that benefit from the deep and rich soils.

The fruit thrives in the warm sunny days and cool nights as a result of gentle breezes coming from the San Francisco Bay and the Delta waterways. This allows it to mature and have a proper balance between fruit character and structure.

The Pinot Grigio was harvested at optimal ripeness, was pressed, and fermented in stainless steel vessels. The wine is 100% stainless steel fermented giving it the crisp and refreshing texture. Temperatures are monitored, not to exceed 56°F to produce a slower, cooler fermentation that traps flavors and aromas. The wine has produced a crisp fruity style wine that is sure to please your palette.

Technical Notes:

Thanks for the info. I’m happy to see its dry.
Where’s the winery name come from and what’s the connection to H-G?

The name came from a boating/water memory -but not sure if it was Pier 8 in New York, where our partner grew up, or somewhere in another land…

H-G Vineyards is the retail side of the winery, so we get to sell some of the brands we produce with partners-this being one of them. :slight_smile:
